There is some interesting stuff about unwed mothers, plus some ghosts!, but it doesn't really make up for how much this series is spinning its wheels, or the "hilarity" of a countess who doesn't understand English idioms (very overused). B/B-.

Georgie is expected to act Royal, but she doesn’t exactly have the funds to pay for such a lifestyle, which in itself leads her into all sorts of scrapes and awkward situations, but she also seems to be a favorite of Queen Mary, who’s always giving her assignments--like checking out what that Mrs. Simpson woman is up to for instance--which involves Georgie in all kinds of investigations and adventures. In this book Queen Mary has asked Georgie to act as a companion for Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark, who’s the bride-to-be of the Queen’s youngest son Prince George. George is something of a wild child whose escapades include intemperate partying, possible drug use, and amorous exploits that make his brother, the future Edward VIII, look like a parent-pleasing Puritan, so the Queen wants to ensure that nothing untoward happens to disrupt the scheduled wedding. But the first night Georgie and Marina spend at Kensington Palace, Georgie spots a body in the courtyard. As it’s someone who’s rumored to be an ex-lover of Prince George the whole thing has to be kept hushed up as much as possible--the princess must not know!--so Georgie and her discreet investigative skills are again put to use. After the last episode in Hollywood it was wonderful to have Georgie back in England, since in this series I prefer class to crass. Georgie’s charming Irish fiancé--the elusive penniless Lord Darcy--is in the midst of a police operation that brings him into the story too (hooray!), but there may be changes in their relationship. Georgie’s savvy best friend Brenda has troubles of her own this time, Georgie’s Cockney, non-royal, ex-police officer grandfather is on hand to give advice, and Georgie’s incompetent but loyal maid Queenie is seeing ghosts. . . There’s some interesting history in the story this time, and an author’s note at the back of the book fills in more of the real life details. Georgie’s part of the story ends with an exciting cliffhanger--I can’t wait to see what she gets into next.

    Rhys Bowen has a gift with words, and the latest Royal Spyness book did not disappoint! In Malice at the Palace Georgie is once again given a task by the Queen; to watch over and help a visiting princess before her royal wedding to the Queen's youngest son, Prince George. However, when a woman who was previously connected to Prince George is found dead Georgie must find the killer before the murderer finds her!

In Malice at the Palace Georgie is once again given a task by the Queen; to watch over and help a visiting princess before her royal wedding to the Queen's youngest son, Prince George. However, when a woman who was previously connected to Prince George is found dead Georgie must find the killer before the murderer finds her! I'm going to start with the end; the end of this book marked a major turning point for three of the series' biggest characters. Each of those three characters, who I'm not going to name because I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone, makes such a big decision that it will definitely effect the following books in this series, and I must say that I am so excited to read the next book, if there is one, and see what happens. The characters were all back in this book, Queenie, Georgie, Darcy, Belinda, and Georgie's grandfather all played huge roles, as always, in this book and they were all wonderful. There were a few new characters, the Princess and her assorted family members, who I also hope we see more of in the next book. The mystery was anticlimactic; parts of it were extremely far-fetched and other parts were simple to figure out. But, if I'm honest, I don't read these books for the mystery, I read them for the amazing characters that I love. Malice at the Palace had superb characters, yet a mediocre mystery. However, the characters and the plotlines involving these character's romances and lives in general greatly overshadowed the mystery, so I don't feel like I'm missing anything in the mystery and because of that I'm giving Malice at the Palace 5/5 stars. Ms. Bowen cannot write the next one fast enough for me!

    4.5 stars... This newest entry in the "Royal Spyness" series featuring Lady Georgiana "Georgie" Rannoch, 35th in line for the British throne, was delightful! A return to the roots, so to speak. Overall, the series has been hit and miss for me, especially with some of the later books. (Mostly I always enjoy, but at varying intensity levels). Maybe it was my mood right now, or just what I needed, but I really enjoyed reading about Georgie's exploits. She really is such fun! We get a little Queenie, 4.5 stars...

We get a little Queenie, Grandad, Fig, Binky, Belinda, & Darcy as well as The Queen herself and several other Royal personages. The new supporting characters for this one were interesting and fun to read about (Marina, Major B-C, etc). I also liked the Ghost parts! Fans of the series, ENJOY! Note: I did find a few editing mistakes... Hopefully they will be caught and fixed by the next publication. I was able to look past them and still enjoy the story. I think book editing these days leave a little to be desired...

I do like reading about Georgie and her life, but this book seemed to lack the energy of the earlier ones. Georgie seems pretty much on her own through most of it. Queenie, her maid, is with her, but she's not allowed out of her room for fear of her embarrassing Georgie. Her friend Belinda is hardly in the story and Darcy doesn't show up until about the last third. Then to add insult the ending has a paranormal twist which was a serious cop out to get Georgie out of trouble. So, while I do like Georgie and learning about all the ends and outs of the royal lifestyle, I didn't think this was the most successful outing.

    3.5 stars. I liked Malice at the Palace far more than the two previous books, thank the stars. The return to England, Georgie's royal relatives and upper class friends was a welcome one - Georgie is back on familiar ground and more comfortable in her own skin, unlike the slightly OOC creature we were introduced to during her Hollywood travels in the last story.

The return to England, Georgie's royal relatives and upper class friends was a welcome one - Georgie is back on familiar ground and more comfortable in her own skin, unlike the slightly OOC creature we were introduced to during her Hollywood travels in the last story. Having been with Georgie through the thick and thin (so to speak), nothing gives me more pleasure than to see her experience a little luck for a change, get a chance to live it up a little and be treated well - and, as a foreign princess' escort, she gets that here. I think the author did better with Georgie's character development in this book by showing that Georgie can be confident and attractive to men even while upholding her morals and staying classy. The supporting characters are generally quite likable in this book, which is a nice change. I know that this is the author's satirical portrayal rather than a reflection of the situation in real life, but most of the supporting cast on Georgie's Hollywood adventure was rather crass. I'd almost come to expect a lot of annoyance from Georgie's acquaintances by now, so it was pleasant to have those expectations thwarted - Princess Marina was sweet and friendly, the "Aunt Heap" and the rest of the royal family were nothing but lovely to Georgie and even Belinda improved (but not before being brought down a peg). Despite looking like it might be the true return to top form (see: Royal Flush, The Twelve Clues of Christmas), Malice in the Palace missed the mark when it came to the mystery and actual relationship or plot progression. As much as I'm still enjoying these books, I finally had to admit to myself this time that it's... the same story every time. There's a Royal Spyness template by now, tweaked here and there for every book. Georgie starts off each book unsure of Darcy's whereabouts (and annoyed about it), finds herself in dire straits and then comes across an unexpected bit of good luck that solves her monetary concerns. A mystery occurs somewhere between the 30-60% mark, Georgie has a surprise meeting with Darcy (who magically fails to inform her of his arrival every time) and they hook up to solve the thing. Just for a change, can't we have her begin the novel with Darcy still around, at least? It's Book 9, and I just realized we still have as little idea of what Darcy does when he isn't around as Georgie does. The mystery, I'm afraid to say, also gets weaker every time. This one began in a promising manner, but the eureka moment and subsequent denouement was left so late that it was over in a few pages. It made no impact - I'd only finished the book 2 days ago and I already had to struggle to recall whodunnit or why. I could actually forgive that, if I wasn't expected to believe that ghosts had a hand in the events in question. (I wish I was kidding.) Thankfully, it does look like we might be heading for some significant step in the relationship department! I've spent long enough with this series that it's enough to keep me excited for the next book - I just hope it doesn't turn out to be a false alarm...

    As one of the lucky fans Rhys Bowen choose to receive an advance copy of her new book I was very excited. I loved this ninth book in the Royal Spyness Mystery series. I have read all of the books in the series and enjoyed them all. This new book was possibly the best in the series. As always the characters were well written and the mystery was strong. I did not find out who committed the murder until Georgie did.

As always, Rhys Bowen's witty writing and great descriptions made the story come alive. This story had many twists and surprises and actually made me gasp out loud at times. I also realized I might not want to read this while walking on my treadmill as I was so engrossed in the story I almost fell off! My only regret is that by receiving an advanced copy I will have to wait longer to get the next in the series!

The rest of the cast for this mystery serves its purpose and is fun to get to know in the context of the story. A fun cozy little comfort food of a book that is expected being the 9th book of a series. Onward to the next book!

Malice at the Palace is the ninth book in Rhys Bowen's Royal Spyness series which is a cozy mystery series set in 1930s England following 35th in line for the throne, Georgiana Rannoch. After finding the previous two books in the seires a bit disappointing, I really enjoyed Malice at the Palace. Now granted, I'm a sucker for paranormal aspects popping up in a histroical mystery and so that may being coloring my opinion a bit, but I'm unrepentant. Georgie has been tasked by the queen to look after another visiting princess, but this princess is far less of a burden and this assignment is actually being aided financially and so Georgie is treated to more glamour and comfort in this book, more to the stye that someone of her station would expect. It had felt over the last few books that the characters lives were getting fairly static; there were small changes but overall it was basically the same thing for them in each book. But there is some serious forward momentum in this book, things are moving forward for these characters and I'm excited to see where these changes will lead and how the dynamics between characters may shift over the next books. I will admit the resolution to the mystery was handled very quickly, but I enjoyed it. I felt that this one wasn't as transparent as others previous in the series have been. I was able to guess the guilty party before the reveal, but still enjoyed how it played out.

The plot revolving around the murder of a party-girl socialite who was once romantically involved with Prince George is pretty straightforward and it is easy to guess the culprit if one if paying attention. The real highlight of the book is Bowen's incorporation of real historical figures within the storyline. As an English history buff, this made the reading experience all the more engaging. The story ends with what appears to be a significant development in Georgie and Darcy's romance, and I look forward to reading the next book soon.

    There is going to be a royal wedding, and the Queen has asked Georgie to help the bride-to-be acclimate to her new home in England.

Wow this story was a lot grittier than I expected. Content warning spoilers: (view spoiler)[ Sex (one scene played for laughs and not too graphic) adultery Dialogue about sex, homosexuality, drugs, abortion (hide spoiler)] The 1930s is in full swing here with the Depression, Hitler running Germany and lots of wild partying. If you've seen the recent Upstairs, Downstairs remake, Prince George makes a cameo appearance so you know what he's like. He's been in these books before so I knew what Georgie knew but the rest of it was a little too gritty for me. The grittiness was counterbalanced a little by the humor but the undercurrent of darkness was always present. I was glad Georgie is back in London because Hollywood didn't suit her at all. I like the English royal setting the best. I wasn't at all surprised by the identity of the murderer. I actually picked out that person before the murder even happened! I was a little surprised by the motive though. I hated the big misunderstanding. I gasped when I read it and hoped he had a good explanation, which he did but I'm not sure it was good enough. I'm torn: on one hand it would make a better story if he didn't, but on the other hand, he would break Georgie's heart (and mine) in the process. I gasped again at the final scene and I wonder if this is the final book in the series or what will happen next? I hope it all works out and we see more of Georgie. My biggest complaint besides the darkness, is that the plot moves pretty slowly. There's a lot of historical information thrown in and at first it seemed like the author did her research on Wikipedia but she reveals knowledge of the royals that isn't found there. I also wasn't thrilled about the paranormal aspect. Umm that came out of nowhere... Georgie is still as charmingly naive and sweet as ever. I adore her and can relate to her a bit. She has a good heart and always wants to help her family and she's willing to support herself if only she could. For those who hate Queenie, she's hardly in this one at all and she's much needed for the comic relief. Georgie is a little tough on Queenie but Georgie has a good heart and explains her reasons for keeping Queenie on. More humor is added from Countess Irmtraut who hates England and doesn't understand idiomatic expressions. The humor is what makes these stories so much fun! Other than Countess Irmtraut, who is a real pill. The new characters include Major B-C, whom I found too polished and too friendly to be true. He seems nice enough but I just didn't like him. There's also Princess Marina, who is a real life member of the royal family. George and Marina seem like a good fit. Marina is fun-loving, has a good sense of humor and doesn't swoon when George urges her to buy a pair of naughty knickers. Then there are the Aunts, Queen Victoria's daughters Beatrice and Louise. They turn out to be unexpectedly delightful. I knew Louise was the cool one and Georgie would like her. Beatrice seems kind too. We don't get to meet Queen Victoria's granddaughters yet. There are also the palace ghosts, including Princess Sophia, daughter of George III who had a tragic past that isn't mentioned in any Georgian or Regency romance novels I've read! The newest character who is not a real life person is Bobo. She never appears on page except as a corpse. She was mysterious and dark; known for her dangerous drug addiction and love of booze. She turns out to be full of surprises as Georgie slowly uncovers the secrets. Returning characters include Georgie's mum, who always annoys me with her breezy insouciance. fortunately she's only in one scene. Belinda appears a few times and first annoyed me and then I felt sympathy for her. A little bit anyway. Darcy remains mysterious and I am unsure if I should trust him though I do love Darcy and Georgie together. Prince George and his brother David, the playboy princes, appear briefly. George seems more willing to change than David, who is still in the clutches of Mrs. Simpson. (Who has one catty scene which made me proud of Georgie). This would be a good book to read on Halloween or between Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night, the time the story takes place. It seems an odd sort of book to release in the summer.

    Quite a good mystery in this 9th book in the Her Royal Spyness series. Plus hardly any of Fig, Lady Georgiana's awful sister-in-law... I was intrigued by the afterword by the author detailing the actual historical events upon which this novel had been loosely based.

    3.5 stars. I liked this--it's always fun to spend time with Georgie and Darcy, and Katherine Kellgren's narration is as divine as ever--but it wasn't a favorite of the series. There was quite a bit to like here though--a storyline about unwed mothers, Princess Marina and the aunts, Georgie's detective work. However, I also had some gripes. I've pretty much accepted by this point that this series doesn't seem likely to evolve much, but Queenie is getting really grating, I wish Darcy and Georgie w 3.5 stars.

I've pretty much accepted by this point that this series doesn't seem likely to evolve much, but Queenie is getting really grating, I wish Darcy and Georgie would FINALLY have sex and end this will-they-or-won't-they thing (at least I know they're getting married three books from now, so I have an end in sight), and the storyline about the Amelia Bedelia-esque countess who didn't understand English idioms wore thin really quickly. My other gripes are BIG SPOILERS, so don't click if you plan to read the book: (view spoiler)[I like that Rhys Bowen includes gay men as characters in these books rather than pretend everyone was straight in the 1930s, buuuuuuut this is the second book out of nine where the murderer has been a gay man. Yes, I suppose being blackmailed about your sexuality in a time when it would ruin you is a perfectly plausible motive for murder, but it didn't sit quite right with me for whatever reason this time. I don't even mind so much that all the gay men are caricatures, because, let's face it, almost everyone in this series besides Georgie and Darcy is a caricature, but do they have to be murderous at such a high rate? Also the way the climactic scene wrapped up--with Georgie being saved by the ghosts of Kensington Palace--was SO DUMB. (hide spoiler)] Despite all the things that bothered me in this one, this was really fun to listen to! Audio is 100% the way to go in this series--I don't know that I would have kept reading this long if I was reading them in print, but the audio is so delightful. I'm a bit sad and apprehensive about eventually getting to book 12, when there is a new narrator, and I really hope she can measure up to Katherine Kellgren's brilliant performances. *Used for PopSugar 2019 Reading Challenge prompt "A book featuring an amateur detective."

    I read this series for pure pleasure. I like the setting (1930's England), the recurring characters, and the premise, which is that Georgiana Rannoch, now 35th in line for the throne, is a young, sweet, smart, sometimes naive, Lady who refused to marry any of the unsuitable European princes that were paraded in front of her as husbands. As a consequence, she scarcely scrapes by with an odd job here or and allowance there. It would embarrass the royal family if she took a job, so she does so secr I read this series for pure pleasure.

As a consequence, she scarcely scrapes by with an odd job here or and allowance there. It would embarrass the royal family if she took a job, so she does so secretly (in previous books). Her grandmother was Queen Victoria, so the royals - including the Prince of Wales- are her cousins. In this adventure, the Queen asks her to move into Kensington Palace to be a companion for Princess Marina of Greece, who will marry Prince George. A body is discovered, and her penchant for sleuthing kicks in. Darcy, her Irish peer boyfriend (also in impoverished circumstances) is part of the action, as is Belinda, her BFF, and the ever amusing Fig, Georgianna's cold, stingy, snobby, jealous sister in law. How her brother Binky married Fig, I can't recall. This is the first time ghosts of past royal family members make an appearance, and it was handled well enough that I didn't groan at a device that isn't needed for interest. A countess named Irmtraut Pushova was amusingly named, but perhaps overdone with taking each idiom literally. I enjoy the references to London, and sometimes Scottish, locales, and the appearance of real people in British and European history. I recommend starting with number 1 of this series - this is number 9. Lots of fun!

    Another winner and as usual, excellent on audiobook, read by Katherine Kellgren. The plot in this one is above the usual, based around the Royal marriage of Prince George (the Prince of Wales' younger brother) and Princess Marina of Greece. Georgie has been asked by the Queen to help Marina become acquainted with London before the wedding and show her around. Georgie gets to move into Kensington Palace (temporarily) and - as usual - finds a dead body!

The body belongs to a socialite drug addict - the girl with the silver syringe (based on real life Kiki Preston) who was a well known lover of Prince George (he was quite the wild one himself!) and possibly mother to his love child. Georgie tries solving the murder mystery and there are plenty of more details. Not as much humor in this book as in the others since this was more plot driven and Belinda and Georgie's mother were not around as much to provide the usual lightness. But that did not detract - I really liked it! Plenty of twists and red herrings, though I did guess the culprit right off the bat - I'm getting good at this, I guess! I love this series and am eager for the next when it comes out. Especially great on audio - a must! 4.5/5

    Being stuck in the quagmire of house selling and buying and moving, I needed something light and frothy to read, and Rhys Bowen's aristocratic amateur sleuth, impoverished Georgianna Rannoch (32nd in line for the British throne at the time of Queen Mary) always provides a refreshing, amusing story. This is the 9th in the series beginning with Her Royal Spyness, and Georgie is still poor, homeless and still trying to avoid living with her unwelcoming sister in law.

This is the 9th in the series beginning with Her Royal Spyness, and Georgie is still poor, homeless and still trying to avoid living with her unwelcoming sister in law. The Queen (as she is wont to do in these books) calls her to tea and asks her to act as a guide for her son Prince George's fiancée- Princess Marina of Greece- as she prepares for the royal wedding. Naturally, as happens in these books, someone is murdered and Georgie has to help find the killer. Georgie's mysterious friend Darcy O'Mara, an Irish aristocrat who seems to be working for the British government, and who has promised to marry Georgie when he has the money to provide for her, returns to London in time to help. Lots of gentle fun.

    I liked this installment quite a bit. Georgie actually figures out the mystery here instead of more or less stumbling across clues and she doesn't get rescued either. I liked both of those developments. There is also some hopeful movement in her relationship with Darcy.

Georgie has proven herself time after time to be brave, smart and capable. Even though it is the thirties, she should work undercover in some way. She's good at it and no one suspects her. I also like that Georgie isn't judgmental, not over class or behavior. She tries to be open-minded about others even if she wouldn't make the choices they make. She tries to understand why a person might behave as they do. I hope eventually we get to know exactly what Darcy is up to. That would be nice. Can't wait for the next one.

    In all fairness, this deserves 3.5. I listened to the audio, as usual, and Katherine Kellgren is a genius as always. The issue was that one ancillary character had a tic that was used multiple times in each scene she was present in and it became so tiresome that I went searching for a Wikipedia summary so I could move on to the next book. Fortunately, there was no such summary and I was forced to press on, and the last third of the book picked up considerably. It’s possible this issue was more i In all fairness, this deserves 3.5.

It’s possible this issue was more intense when listening, but I still think there was a bit too much of “Trouty” and he struggle with English idiom. Other than that, always happy to spend my walks home from work with Georgie.

    Wonderful! This book was her best yet in the Lady Georgie series. We have Lady Georgiana requested to be companion to the Princess Marina and help her get ready for her nuptials to Prince George. She is staying at Kensington Palace with Marina. There is a murder of course and Georgie's love, Darcy turns up to make things more exciting. The book is one you won't want to put down. Wonderful!

    Ninth in the Her Royal Spyness historical mystery series and revolving around Lady Georgiana Rannoch in the London of 1934. My Take I don't know if I'm becoming more aware of Georgie's character or if Bowen is becoming more overt with Georgie's impetuous decisions. I could have sworn that Georgie never used to jump to conclusions on small bits of evidence?? Admittedly, the evidence of that bathrobe would make my eyes roll, and I'd be quite determined to find out what the truth was. But drug runnin Ninth in the Her Royal Spyness historical mystery series and revolving around Lady Georgiana Rannoch in the London of 1934. My Take I don't know if I'm becoming more aware of Georgie's character or if Bowen is becoming more overt with Georgie's impetuous decisions. I could have sworn that Georgie never used to jump to conclusions on small bits of evidence?? Admittedly, the evidence of that bathrobe would make my eyes roll, and I'd be quite determined to find out what the truth was. But drug running? Gimme a break. *eye roll* After all, Georgie has known Darcy for quite some time now, and if she doesn't know him better by now… Nor is Darcy the only one she leaps to conclusions about. Traudi, Prince George, and his equerry also come in for it. And each time, Georgie is positive they're the one. What complicates Georgie's life is her family. It simply wouldn't do for Lady Georgiana to get any old job, not when the king and queen are cousins — Queen Victoria was Georgie's great-grandmother. As gorgeous as Mummy sounds, I think she's despicable. She's running around with an extremely wealthy man and has no concerns about the straits to which her daughter is reduced. But when Mummy offers Georgie an allowance (with Max's money), Georgie refuses it, but then she whines on about why the royal family doesn't give her an allowance so she doesn't end up taking a job of which they would strongly disapprove. What's the difference who gives her the money? Are the royals as dim as Mummy that no one realizes Georgie's financial embarrassment? Of course Fig is even worse. She knows how broke Georgie is, and is "appropriately" appalled when Georgie mentions living with her grandfather. However, she doesn't do anything so charitable as to ask Georgie to come live in her old family home. You know, the one with upteen bedrooms? I do love how Fig's always putting her foot in it. That comment Binky makes about her looks versus how gorgeous Georgie's mother is, ROFL, absolutely perfect. Then there's that invite to Buck House for tea with the Queen. I do like the Princess Louise. She sounds like she was a firecracker herself, *grin*. The Princess Marina is a sweetheart as well, she even invites Georgie to come and live with her and Prince George when they're married if Fig still won't have her at the house. It is a blend of true history and the liberties of the novelist, and Bowen has had fun in weaving the two together to create this tale. The Story It's Belinda's sudden and unexpected return to London that throws Georgie into the streets again. With Queen Mary coming to the rescue. She needs someone to watch over the Princess Marina…and make sure she hears nothing of her future husband's past antics! Combine this task with the Home Office and Special Branch needing her help in solving the murder of a young socialite…and you know Lady Georgie will be quite the busy lady what with breaking-and-entering, impersonating others, questioning witnesses, and following clues… The Characters Lady Georgina Rannoch is unmarried without money, jobless, and thirty-fifth in line for the throne with a nose for a mystery. Queenie is Georgie's totally useless maid. Castle Rannoch is the family seat in Scotland. Binky is her brother and the Duke of Glen Garry and Rannoch; Fig is his nasty, flinty wife. Podge and Adelaide are Binky and Fig's children. Hamilton is the family butler. Georgie's mummy, Claire Daniels, was known as the Bolter as she ran off from her husband, the duke, when Georgie was two. She's currently living with Max Von Strohheim, a German industrialist. Her maternal grandfather, Albert Spinks, is a retired Cockney policeman who lives in Essex. Mrs. Huggins is granddad's next-door neighbor (Queenie is her great-niece). The Honorable Darcy O'Mara appears to be a spy for the government. He's also an Irish peer's heir with no prospects as his father, Lord Kilhenny, had to sell almost everything off. He seems to be in love with Georgie, but he's always flitting off somewhere. Belinda Warburton-Stokes is a flighty friend of Georgie's with a mews cottage in Knightsbridge. The Royal Family Queen Mary asks her young relative to do her a favor. Prince George is getting married in a few weeks. Edward, the Prince of Wales, is still dallying with the cutting Mrs. Simpson, as Mr. Simpson trails behind. Bertie has married his Elizabeth, and they have two daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret Rose. Kensington Palace is… …what David calls the Aunt Heap where two of Queen Victoria's daughters live, great-aunts both to Georgie: Princess Louise and Princess Beatrice. Phyllis is Princess Louise's maid. There's also Princess Alice (Hettie is her maid) and the Dowager Marchioness of Milford Haven. Major Gerald Beauchamp-Chough, Life Guards, is the master of house at the palace as well as Prince George's equerry. The ghosts include Princess Sophia, who was George III's daughter who supposedly had a baby for whom she still haunts the palace and Peter, the Wild Boy. Princess Marina of Greece is George's fiancée. The stodgy Countess Irmtraut "Traudi" von Dinkelfingen-Hackensack is a cousin of Marina's and seems to be a companion. A dour, grim, humorless one. Miss Kate Fox had been Marina's nanny. Jimmy is the first footman, Elise is the parlor maid, and Ivy is a housemaid. Sir Jeremy Danville is with the Home Office and has worked with Georgie before. The mean-spirited Detective Chief Inspector Pelham is with Special Branch at Scotland Yard and is annoyed about Sir Jeremy bringing Georgie in on this. Detective Constable Coombs is with Scotland Yard. Bobo Carrington, a.k.a., the girl with the silver syringe and Kathleen Boyle, had been one of Prince George's mistresses and one of London's Bright Young Things. Frederick is the day doorman at Bobo's apartment building; William is on the nightshift. Mrs. Preston was Bobo's cleaning lady. Mary Boyle may be Bobo's mother. Of course, there had been other mistresses including Poppy Baring. Gussie Gormsley's father owns newspapers and magazines; Gussie is getting married to Primrose Asquey d'Asquey. Albert is his man. Noel Coward is one of Claire's friends as well as a very close friend of George's. Gertrude Lawrence is an actress; Mrs. Astley-Cooper is a society matron. Hugo is being blackmailed about Gerry. Edward Molyneux is the designer who creates Marina's wedding dress. Crockford's is a gambling establishment for members only. Monty Pratchett and Whiffie Anstruther entertain Princess Marina and Georgie at dinner. Sir Toby Blenchly is a cabinet minister who espouses family values and is about to engage in some slap-and-tickle with Belinda. J. Walter Oppenheimer was Sir Toby's guest. Prince "Fishface" Siegfried of Romania was one of the men suggested to Georgie for a husband. Only. He's gay. Willie Lightfingers Buxton was a safecracker. Haseldene is a private clinic in Sussex. Maureen is one of the attendants at Haseldene. The Cover and Title The cover is grays and greens with a sophisticated Georgie with her blonde bobbed hair, her singed green velvet gown, green elbow-length gloves with the white fur stole for camouflage, as she stands in front of a brick wall in the night with Kensington Palace in the background. The usual ribbon with its picot edge lies taut across the bottom as a background for the title and the series information. The author's name is at the top. The title is where the danger lies, for there is Malice at the Palace, and Georgie had better watch her step.

The Princess will be staying at Kensington Palace until the wedding, and Georgie has been asked to help her get acclimated to England. Almost immediately, trouble starts. Georgie stumbles upon the dead body of one of Prince George’s previous lovers. The Crown wants to keep the incident low-key, but Georgie wants to find out what happened. This leads her down a trail of surprises, including a home for unwed mothers and a missing baby. I love the character of Georgie, and I like the way she handles herself among her relatives and friends. Her sister-in-law is horrid and her “best friend” is a selfish brat. I don’t know how she has the patients, but she always takes the high road and ends up ahead. This was a good mystery, with a surprising killer. It had a little paranormal aspect to it, for those who like ghosts.
